Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry (Puffin Modern Classics) Mildred D. Taylor Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Winner of the Newbery Medal, this remarkably moving novel has impressed the hearts and minds of millions of readers.

Set in Mississippi at the height of the Depression, this is the story of one family's struggle to maintain their integrity, pride, and independence in the face of racism and social injustice. And it is also Cassie's story—Cassie Logan, an independent girl who discovers over the course of an important year why having land of their own is so crucial to the Logan family, even as she learns to draw strength from her own sense of dignity and self-respect.

* "[A] vivid story.... Entirely through its own internal development, the novel shows the rich inner rewards of black pride, love, and independence."—Booklist, starred review

    This book is a great book. I am a fifth grader at Christian Brothers School and had to read this book for school. As a kid who always wanted to learn about racism and all that sort of stuff, this book was great for me. I have read this book three times now and every time something different in the book stands out to me. Mildred D. Taylor did a great job of writing this book and really making the book suspenseful to where you wanted to read on.
  • Awesome book!

    This book made me love reading. Read it in 4th grade and still love it at 34. Great book; great story!
  • Boring

    By Misspelled names.
    This book was super boring. I could barely pay attention. It’s like,” Mr.Berry died.” There is no emotion, or no reaction.
  • Amazing

    By pusheen999
    This book is absolutely amazing. It perfectly describes the hard life of a black family in the Great Depression. 10/10 Jacob
